How to play Apple Music on Android TV?

Android TV is a smart TV platform from Google built around the Android operating system. Users can stream content to your TV via apps, both free and paid, using your internet connection. It's not a television, but an operating system for your TV, gaming console or set-top box. Think of it like having a smart TV with built-in streaming and gaming apps or like using a device such as the Roku or Apple TV. Android TV also includes access to the Google Play Store, where you can download streaming apps, such as Netflix, Hulu, and HBO GO, as well as gaming apps. It supports streaming videos and audios from Netflix, YouTube, BBC iPlayer, Spotify, Google Play Music, Pandora, and your local music files. But unfortunately, there is no Apple Music app supported by Android TV. Besides, it doesn’t support streaming Apple Music, since Apple Music songs are protected by DRM. You are not allowed to stream or transfer them on any unauthorized devices.
